Court TV anchor Nancy Grace lands CNN prime time show
UPI News Service, 01/10/2005
Court TV anchor Nancy Grace will serve as host of a prime time show as part of the upcoming makeover of CNN Headline News, The Hollywood Reporter said Monday.
Citing sources, the paper said the show would air at 8 p.m. Eastern, and is one of three new shows planned for CNN Headline News. CNN reportedly planned to provide details at the upcoming Television Critics Association winter tour this week.
CNN executives told The Reporter last year that Headline News would undergo dramatic changes in prime time in a campaign to improve its ratings -- including an entertainment show and another news show.
Grace -- who joined Court TV after serving as a special prosecutor in the Atlanta Fulton County District Attorney's Office in Georgia -- is currently the host of the daily trial coverage show "Closing Arguments." She is also a substitute host on CNN's "Larry King Live."
